Aimed at shaping the future of high-speed aviation, the three-year agreement was signed to help Boom accelerate the production of advanced tooling and production-grade aircraft parts based on Stratasys FDM 3D-printing technology.

By leveraging the design freedom, production speed and heightened cost efficiencies of additive manufacturing, Boom plans for the first flight of XB-1, its supersonic demonstrator, to take place next year. The company is deploying Stratasys FDM-based Fortus 450mc and F370 3D printers – both designed to produce on-demand parts leveraging production-grade thermoplastics as well as advanced manufacturing tools that perform even under aviation’s most challenging environments.

The three-year agreement will enable Boom to leverage FDM-based 3D printing for production-grade aircraft parts and advanced composite tooling.
